I Hired Wendy to reduce my spousal support payment. I had already been divorced for around 6 years and circumstances had changed in my life and the monthly payment to my ex needed to be reduced. We went to court about 7 months after retaining Wendy and before going into the court we worked out a deal in the hallway which was agreeable to both parties. I was told that the agreement would be written up filed with the court. About 4 months went by and I never received any paperwork or communication with Wendy. I contacted her assistant and was told that she did not know if the agreement had been filed and if it had not that it would be filed as soon as possible. About 10 weeks went by before I received paperwork regarding my agreement. The other party at this point was disagreeing to our original agreement so I am at square one again. I feel that my case was not worked out in a timely manner and if it was, circumstances would be different. I lost all confidence in Wendy and the firm and feel that communication was poor, and that my best interest was not considered. I paid a considerable amount of money to Wendy and feel overcharged for what was or was not done to settle matters with my ex. At this point I had to retain other consul to settle my case.

DO NOT HIRE THIS WOMAN unless you are feeling like your money should be donated to her personally for NOTHING IN RETURN!!! I came to Wendy with a custody and child support agreement that had already been settled with my prior lawyer and the respondent and his council. I hired her to help create more favorable and detailed terms for me within the agreement. I came to her as a single Mom and student, on a recommendation from someone that used to work with her, who also couldn't be more disappointed with her performance. She knew my case was dealing with small #'s and that every bit of savings I had was being used to provide from my son as I got through school. After a 5 month period, Mrs. Fountain not only bled dry my $5,000 retainer, having done absolutely zero work. She ALSO wanted $1300 more. She stupidly acted like she didn't know this prior agreement that I furnished her with upon our very first meeting was already a "judgment," which meant final signatures were mandatory and simply a clerical matter according to the judge. Plus, I explained the situation to her thoroughly. In the end, I appeared in front of the judge representing myself so he could tell me that these signatures were a clerical matter and that a request for modification would have to be filed for any actual changes to be made. This is Law School 101 and Wendy missed the boat by a mile so in the end, I gave this woman $5000 so I could go to court for myself and write my own name on a document that had to be finalized as a clerical matter. She made not one change or improvement to that document because it wasn't even possible. From the very beginning she should have filed a new request for order, period. Rather, she stole my $5,000 and did NOTHING!!! I literally mean ZERO work and yet kept my $. I gave her the opportunity to make good by this and she has consistently ignored my outreach. Please, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE give this woman a penny of your money. She is the definition of a CROOK. Upon firing her, I was furnished with a copy of my complete file, which reflects all of the above. Opposing council was Tom Tuttle, who actually seemed to know his stuff. I would recommend his firm any day over this woman and whoever she happens to be working for at the time.

Wendy is a caring and compassionate attorney. More importantly she understands the law and how it pertains to your particular situation. She is very familiar with the system and the judicial officers. She has helped me throuh a very difficult time in my life.
